Share This:

Men’s 800m world record holder David Rudisha will sit out the IAAF World Athletics Championship holding this August in London citing a quad muscle strain.

The defending champion made this known via his twitter account on Monday.

Rudisha ran a world-leading 1:43.35 in the 800m at the Istvan Gyulai Memorial in Hungary few weeks ago in preparation to defend his title in London, where he set a world record of 1.40. 91s in 2012

In his absence, fellow compatriot Emmanuel Korir and Botswana’s Nijel Amos, who are currently leading in ranking this year will battle for the 800m crown at the championships.
